Introduction to Adobe Photoshop Course

Adobe Photoshop has long been the go-to application for image editing of all kinds. It’s used for everything from enhancing or manipulation photographs for print  to formatting images for social media and website use. For an idea of what you can do with the software take a look at the work created with Photoshop on Behance.
